A £75,000 major resurfacing scheme on the Banbridge Road, Lurgan is to get started next month, Transport Minister Danny Kennedy announced this week.

The scheme will extend from Ballynabragget Road to Ballylough Road.

Minister Kennedy said: “This £75,000 scheme represents a significant investment in the roads infrastructure in the Lurgan area and road users will realise the long term benefits from the new road surface along this stretch.”

To help minimise disruption to road users and to meet Health & Safety Regulations it will be necessary to have a road closure in operation from Monday, August 10, until completion of the works on August 24.

The diversion routes will be via Tullyraine Road, Gilford, Plantation Road and Waringstown Road.

TransportNI and the contractor will make every effort to minimise inconvenience, and would ask that the public exercise caution and patience whilst the works are in progress.

TransportNI has made every effort to minimise inconvenience to the public. Motorists, however, should be aware that some delays can be expected and 
they should allow additional time when planning journeys.

As with all works of this nature planned dates are subject to favourable weather conditions and TransportNI will keep the public informed of any unavoidable change.
